The Village of Skokie Human Relations Commission was created to promote unity and to encourage residents to work in integrated ways to strengthen the community. The purpose of the commission is to encourage understanding and respect between residents of various racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds; to safeguard the rights of all citizens as defined by our ordinances, statutes and the constitution and to promote the amicable settlement of disputes between neighbors. Commissioners serve for three years.
